In January, representatives of Lviv Polytechnic visited Kingston University for a week.
Our new coachers Oksana Perkhach, Veronika Karkovska, Oksana Khymych, Yuriy Blunda and Tech StartUp School representative Yana Levytska participated in pieces of training of the Creative Spark project, supported by the British Council.
The main purpose of the program is to activate entrepreneurship and create start-ups among students of Ukrainian higher education institutions
Polytechnics will teach a new generation of students on the experience of colleagues at Kingston University.
– The main purpose of the program is to activate entrepreneurship and create startups among students of Ukrainian Universities. Last year our colleagues already went to such training. Our main task was to take on foreign experience in improving the activity of our students, in general, young people in different cities of Ukraine. We were members of the Bright Ideas hackathon organized by Kingston University for students and London stakeholders. We are both theoretically and practically savvy to continue to do such training in Ukraine for our youth, – says Associate Professor Oksana Perkhach.
People who have ideas and would like to implement them do not know how to begin. Creative Spark is a British Council program run by the Tech StartUp School and the Department of Administrative and Financial Management of Lviv Polytechnic National University in partnership with Kingston University (UK). Due to certain training, this program allows you to know how to realize your idea and to find the right future investors for yourself, – adds Associate Professor Veronika Karkovska.
Thanks to Kingston University Program Coordinator Alan Flowers, coaches attended the Creative Spark Showcase at the British Council office. There were presented the Big Idea Challenge winners. Among them was a PiPillow – Big Idea Challenge winner from Tech StartUp School.
